Book Review: Art of Kian

Art of Kian - 01

Here's a new sketchbook I saw recently at Basheer Graphic Books a few days ago. The 21x21cm 100-page paperback was created for STGCC by artist Kian. There aren't much information of this artist, about where he comes from and his portfolio. I think it's a missed opportunity whenever an artist choose to present him/herself like that.

This sketchbook collected work that he has drawn from 2014-2016. They are mostly pen and ink line art with occasional painted pieces. The technique is great and perhaps Kian is a comic artist. The subject matter is mostly about a man, a bear and occasionally other elements. This same man and bear will appear as a motif throughout the book. The art is good.

This book is available currently at Basheer Graphic Books. It's also available for sale at Kian's Etsy page.
